    Agreed, it was a beautiful send off. I will be watching tomorrow's missing-man formation of 21 F/A-18's of the U.S. Navy. It will be the first time the Navy has done such a formation for a fallen President with such a large number of aircraft. I have been to a couple of Naval Aviator funerals and for me, that is perhaps the most poignant moment of the memorial.

    One of the reasons he flew an Avenger... more legroom in that cockpit.

    Give it a rest Bartdaws… using the LOL tab for posts of condolence is a classless thing to do.

    Agreed. What a loser.

    I recall another longtime member doing this to one of my posts when McCain passed. I had the same thought at that time.
  • I just saw W's eulogy. Very touching and funny. What a great family.

    I am sure I know whom that was. In fact, I think I saw him on the bottom of my shoe yesterday.

    ^^Where was your same advice in the McCain RIP thread?

    I gave my sincere condolences to Bush Sr. on the first page. Where is yours, or you just here to bust chops? And I ask this with all due respect.

    And I am done with this.

    I can admit I was wrong, won't make that same mistake here in this one. So I'm just asking politely, don't start, please.
